Bold and rich, with a touch of holiday spice. The first thing one notices about a Samuel Adams Winter Lager is the deep ruby color. Then comes the magical aroma which promises something special on the tongue. The cinnamon, ginger, and hint of citrus from the orange peel blend with the roasty sweetness of the malts to deliver a warming, spicy flavor. On the palate Samuel Adams Winter Lager is rich and full bodied, robust and warming, a wonderful way to enjoy the cold evenings that come with the season.

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2005 This beer actually seperates itself from the Sam Adams pack in that it doesnt taste like that standard Sam beer. It pours a dark amber shade with a really superb tan head that lasts. The tastes are a bit complex - dark, fruity, and tingy hops with some good grainy malts too. Theres a bit of caramel and maybe some plumb. The mouthfeel is thick and lightly carbonated. I dont know much about the style, but this is a pretty good beer overall.

brownish/red tint pour. Carmel taste. No winter flavour here. Come on Sam Addy. You in Boston. you KNOW winter! vaaa. hoppy, nothing to stand out. Not much warmth to compliment a cold day. I guess I enjoyed it ok though.

Had a very pour with a quickly fading white head, ended up clear brown. Nose is kind of dull...not a lot going on here, just some malts. Some caramel flavor, sweet malts, maybe a little spice. Caramel aftertaste is long and nice.

Cant say a really care for this one. Smelled ricey to me (did not detect the "winter spices"). The color was nice and it looked clean. The taste was malty with a hint of nutmeg or somesuch spice. Overall very basic and one dimensional but better than their lite beer offering.

Bottle. Deep amber colored body. Tan head leaves great lacing behind. Wheat and roasted malt in the aroma. Flavor is like a Hefe with roasted grain characteristics. A little thin. Fair but nothing to search after.

Amberish red with brown tint and a huge thick head that takes forever to break up. Aroma is nutty and has a hint of chocolate. Taste is sweet malt, almond, and good serving of raisins. I like bocks but this comes across strange.

Pour is a deep brown with a small head. Aroma is very malty and strong. flavor is malt with a very sweet spice to it. Aftertaste is carmel and a nice dose of fruitness. I like it!

THIS ONES FOR YOU, SCRAFF: had this brew last night at a restaurant guess tis the season for the so called winter beers to hit the shelves. poured on draft brown clear with a off white head, looked like a newcastle without the head. nose mostly of slight malt wet uninteresting fluff. in your mouth slight sweet rock candy feel with a moderate amt of malt backbone dominating the palate. ends with light hopping and nutty aftertaste...a bit on the thin side. but what do we expect, its a sam adams.?!?!

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2007 Bottle: Strong malty aroma. Caramel, brown sugar and fruit. Pours a very dark amber almost a transparent brown with a small off-white head that fades quickly. Nice malty flavor up front. Caramel, fruit, light brown sugar. Some roasty bitterness comes thru in the finish.
